Waiting For Next Year:
Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer is reporting that head coach Rob Chudzinski will name Norv Turner his offensive coordinator. The delay in announcement of the hiring is that Turner is currently out of town.
Turner, 60, was head coach of the San Diego Chargers for the past six seasons, and Chudzinski spent two of those seasons as his tight ends coach and assistant head coach in 2009-2010. He has a record of 118-126-1 in stints with Oakland, Washington, and San Diego. He also has experience as offensive coordinator in Dallas, San Diego, Miami, and San Francisco for a combined seven seasons.
Chudzinski said Friday morning that he would be open to relinquishing play calling responsibilities if he had the right coordinator.
Cabot also reports that the search for GM/personnel director includes names Ray Farmer (Chiefs), Tom Gamble (49ers), George Paton (Vikings), John Idzik (Seahawks), and Michael Lombardi (NFL Network analyst).

Among all the firings of coaches and general managers around the league last week, there were three I thought were noteworthy regarding their success against the Titans. Those three are former Chargers G.M. A.J. Smith and coach Norv Turner and former Bears coach Lovie Smith.
As we painfully recall, the Chargers and Bears each humiliated the Titans in 2012, by scores of 38-10...
Chudzinski worked with Cam Newton the past two seasons with the Panthers. It is been rumored that former Chargers coach Norv Turner will join Chudzinski as the offensive coordinator.
3 years ago everyone was calling for Norv Turner to be fired because of the Chargers’ tendency to have strong regular seasons and then choke in the playoffs every year. I bet the Chargers would trade the last three years for that. Over the last 3 years, the Chargers have begun their underachieving earlier, missing the playoffs in all 3 seasons.
On one hand, things are looking up...
